WRATH (a poem)

Katie Kay

is this the surface of the sun,
or the hot boil of my blood?

is this the rupture of my veins,
or the mighty dawn of a hurricane?

is this a clot in my heart,
or am i just falling apart?


IRA

is an intense emotional state. It involves a strong uncomfortable and hostile response to a perceived provocation, hurt or threat. -Wikipedia

Now I know we all have been here at some point or the other: Wrath is a destructive force with the power to tear us down within seconds of its activation. When we are consumed by our anger, bad things happen. We do and say things we don’t mean to the point of potentially harming ourselves or others.

A Place Of Love And Music ~ A Poem By Walt Page, The Tennessee Poet

Walt's Writings

I cry for the winds to carry me
to the place where there’s no pain.
A place where I am young again
with meaning to my name.


Where I could hear the waterfalls
or sit and watch the waves.
A place of love and music
no worries and no stress.


Where flowers bloom all year
a place where I can rest.
Where I can always hear the music,
the songs that I love best.


I know that they will take me there
when the time is right,
but I’m not really ready yet.
There’s too much left to do.

~The Tennessee Poet~

But I Smile Anyway...

“I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars.”

Og Mandino

Many thanks, Spidey, for that thought provoking quote.

It’s easy to chug along with your plans for life, especially when everything is going your way.

Not so simple when it feels like everything is going against your every wish.

The above quote really made me think.

Because recently, certain dreams of mine have been put on hold, in order to realise others.

I feel like I am living a life of light and darkness at the same time.

Light, with my professional life, finally knowing I have my own class, but also fretting as I have a lot to set up in my classroom, and I can’t wait for school to end so I can make my mark!

Dark with my writing, but I know…
